Obscure recordings, eating the leftovers of others, and sex ed puppetry for kids… on the Saturday Six Pack with Mark Maynard

On our very first show, a young boy called in from Ann Arbor to proclaim, somewhat inexplicably, “I have no regrets.” Well, unlike him, I do have regrets. This week, mistakes were made.
